About This Chapter
Number Patterns & Sentences - Chapter Summary
For a high-level overview of number patterns and sentences, check out this useful math chapter. Our expert math instructors will help you define and understand mathematical concepts related to number sentences, special sequences, continuing patterns and more. When you're finished with the chapter, you should be able to:
- Define mathematical sequences and number sentences
- Understand how special sequences are generated
- Recognize continuing patterns with decimals, whole numbers and fractions
Be sure to take the accompanying lesson quizzes to practice solving number pattern and sentence problems on your own. You can also ask our instructors questions if you need any extra help. These resources are available at any time, and you can use any computer or mobile device to access the chapter material.
1. What is a Mathematical Sequence?
Math is often the most fun when it acts like a puzzle to be solved. The branch of math where this is the most true involves sequences. Get an introduction to the basics and important vocabulary, as well as learn where sequences appear in nature!
2. Special Sequences and How They Are Generated
Sequences are interesting things in math and in nature. The most interesting thing is that these sequences have a pattern to how they are generated. We will learn about a few of them in this video lesson.
3. Continuing Patterns With Fractions, Decimals & Whole Numbers
This lesson will have a quick review of the definitions of whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Then, we will look at patterns of these types of numbers and the process of continuing these patterns based on identifying rules that a pattern follows.
4. What is a Number Sentence? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, find out what elements are required for a complete number sentence and view some examples (and non-examples) of number sentences. Then, test your knowledge with a brief quiz.
